Beat the winter bulge with CLATUU

Winter has arrived and so too have the gym excuses. If you are struggling against the effects of the chilly weather (not to mention hot chocolates and other calorie-laden comfort foods) and have some unwanted fat on your abdomen, thighs or hips, CLATUU may be the answer.

CLATUU is the latest body contouring device, offering a non-surgical approach to fat reduction. The procedure is quick and requires no surgery, no downtime and minimal discomfort.

It offers the perfect winter treatment to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat such as pesky love handles or bra bulges, so that come spring you’ll be ready and willing to show off your more svelte and streamlined self.

Dr Steve Merten and his team at Pure Aesthetics offer CLATUU in their clinic and describe it as their non-surgical body contouring treatment of choice, as it offers suitable patients a good alternative to surgical fat reduction.

“CLATUU is an effective procedure to eliminate stubborn fat that diet and exercise just won’t shake,” Dr Merten explains. “It can also contour the body to create a more pleasing and proportionate shape.”

How does CLATTU work?

CLATUU is a device that permanently destroys fat through a process known as cryolipolysis, or fat freezing. It works by gently drawing fat into the 360-degree applicators and cooling the area to a temperature that causes the fat cells to die, without harming the skin.

“The damaged fat cells are collected and eliminated by the body’s natural processes over a period of two to three months, leaving a smoother, sleeker body contour in the treatment area,” explains Dr Merten.

CLATUU can be used on nearly any area of the body, including the hips, flanks, abdomen, thighs and back, so treatment can be tailored to individual concerns.

“The main areas suitable for treatment are the hips, flanks, mid-section, thighs and back. The CLATUU has two handsets and this allows for dual areas of treatment in the same amount of time,” says Dr Merten.

“A good candidate should be at or near their ideal body weight, eat well and exercise regularly but still have stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to a healthy lifestyle,” he says.

What does the procedure involve?

CLATUU is an ideal lunchtime procedure, performed in the doctor’s clinic, with a typical treatment taking around 60 minutes. There is no downtime involved and you can return to work or usual activities straight away.

“No downtime is definitely one of the biggest perks,” says Dr Merten. “Patients are able to leave from their treatment and continue about their day – it’s an ideal lunchtime procedure for the right candidate.”

Each patient responds differently to the treatment with regards to how high of a tolerance they have for discomfort. However, most patients find the treatment very tolerable and describe it as a tingling, numbing sensation.

“The treatment area will also impact the degree of discomfort, as well as the patient’s BMI,” adds Dr Merten.

Over the following weeks and months after the treatment, the body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat through the lympathic system. Visible results can be seen from just one treatment, however treatments will vary from patient to patient and from area to area, and normally a series of sessions will produce the best results.

“Usually 2-3 treatments will be required, but this will mostly be determined over time,” says Dr Merten.

So, if you’re struggling with unwanted fat and looking to get rid of the dreaded winter bulge, CLATUU offers a quick, easy and effective solution that can achieve noticeable and permanent results.
